Nombre de Dios 

The Mission of Nombre de Dios traces its origins to the founding of the City of St. Augustine, America's oldest city, in 1565. On September 8, 1565, Pedro Menendez de Aviles landed and proclaimed this site for Spain and the Church. It was here that Menendez knelt to kiss a wooden cross presented to him by Father Francisco Lopez de Mendoza Grajales, chaplain of his expedition.
